At the beginning of the month everyone’s favourite little royal took his first steps into the world of school. A pupil (yes, he’s just like the rest of us) at Thomas’s Battersea, he’s even going by the name of George Cambridge just so that he can fit in with all his other classmates. Whilst everything appears as normal as can be, there’s one thing the 4-year-old royal won’t be allowed to have: a best friend.
And as you can imagine, people all over the world are feeling a little sad about the whole thing. While the school policy is not gospel, it extends much further than just the little prince. According to Loose Women panelist Jane Moore, the prep school discourages all pupils from singling out just one BFF:
‘There are signs everywhere saying, “Be kind,” that’s the ethos of the school. They don’t encourage you to have best friends,” she said.
‘There’s a policy that if your child is having a party, unless every child in the class is invited you don’t give out the invites in class, which I think is quite a good thing as you don’t feel excluded … it’s a school that really expects parental involvement.
‘The parents are very heavily involved in the school so they [Kate Middleton and Prince William] will be as well,’ she added.
